SUGAR FOR JAM
Pam and Jean spent an enormous amount of time cooking and selling jams and chutneys last year and made an amazing profit for the church of £3,160. Any donations of sugar, or money to buy some, would be welcome for them to cover the cost of ingredients and continue
Children and Adults welcome. Our new musical director, Graham Caldbeck, is recruiting and training a choir. It will have a practice usually on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month at 9.30am. Children will spend part of the service in Sunday School and then return to sing. Children only will receive £1 for practice and £1 if they stay on for Sunday School and Singing.
Further Choir practices will be from 9.30 - 10.15am on 16th March, and 6th and 20th April.
EXPLORER SCOUTS KENYA PROJECT
24 Scouts and 8 Leaders will be building a computer classroom at Rabai and a kitchen and dining room at St Clement School, Malindi, in July, funded by a £20,000 grant from Jersey Overseas Aid. They are aslo trying to raise £3,500 to build a toilet and shower block for St Clement Malindi, where there are only two toilets for over 250 children.
The showers will be useful for the Scouts when they work there for three weeks in July/August, and also for groups staying at the school, the children can use after sport, or just for having a shower as they have no bathroom at home.
The Scouts are appealing for donations and selling 'BRICKS' at £5 each. A sheet for donations is at the back of the church. Thank you.
Sue Bradley is always looking for help with the project at the sewing centre in Rabai which is making washable sanitary towels for school girls at £2.50 per girl. We have matching funds £1 for £1 in our account that we cannot use until we have the money to match. So every £1 given will double in value. Eventually we hope to help 4,000 girls. Cheques made payable to St Clement Church or cash to Pam or Sue. Thank you.
